The Golden Age. SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

SATURDAY, .'1AJRCH 2, 1861. TuE assertion made by Mr. HENRY HALL, from the Magisterial Bench, a few weeks ago was, to say the very least of it, of a swveeping character. To say of a petition very - numerously signed, that there was " not the name of a per son of respectability or standing in society contained in it," was going very much too far, atid could be justified duly where the signatures, attached were ex elusively those of persons whose moral character, regardless of their' social rank, was known to be tainted in someI way or other. Had a gang of convicts, a nest of reputed cattle-stealers, or other equally notorious class of offen ders, unmixed with a single name whose honour is unstained and whose charac ter is unimpeachable, made up the sum total of the list of signatures appended to the petition repudiated by Mr. HALL, under such circumstances alone might any one dare to publicly impugn the respectability of the petitioners. What Mr. HALL'S idea of respectability is we c...

DOUBLE MURDER AT ALDERSHOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

DOUBLE MURDER AT ALDER SHOTT. James Johnson, aged 25, a private in. the 41st Regiment of Foot, was indicted for the wilful murder of Owen Chipts, a sergeant of the same corps, on the 29th Sept. at Alder shott. The facts are these :-On Friday, the 28th September, the 4.1st went out for ball-practice; ten rounds were supplied, and the day being wet only seven were fired, the men retaining the spare ammunition. Next day the prisoner was told.to by Sergeant Chipts to clean the fireplaces; he did so, but said he could not polish them, Chipts told him to go on with his work, on which Johnson rubbed a dirty brush over the fire-places. This caused Co lour-Sergeant Penny to say he would confine him, and ordered two men to take him to the the guard-room. About 11 o'clock Johnson said that the colonel had given him 12 days' extra drill on Chipts's complaint, and said " If I get any punishment for this I will kill some .- -before night." On coming out of the guardroom he exclaimed, " I will mak...

VOLUNTEER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

VOLUNTEER REVIEW. TUE review of the New South Wales volun teer rifles on Saturday, wtis not attended with the favourable weather which the corps have generally managed to select for their field days; the rain descended with that steady, relentless, persevci'in'g pourwhich, until lately, Was supposed to oe confined exclusively to the British Isles, but very likely, with other good things, has been' imported from London. The rain descended with such 'violence odilivened at intervals with flashes of. forked .ligtning and heavy. peals of-thunder, that the corps already assembled wero on the point of re turning, when the head of the column of the main body was seen advancing up the road, and soon afterwards entered the University paddock, through the pelting of the pitiless storm.. As, soon as they had assembled.on the ground they formed into open' columna of companies right in front, and then passed through a successioni of manwnvres and fir ings, after which the adjutant -read; an orde...

GARIBALDI. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

GARIBALDI. HIS NEW PROCLAMATION.-The Na- tionalities of Turin publishes the follow- ing proclamation by Garibaldi. It is evidently intended as a hint to the Maz- zinians, who try to stir up dissensions:- " Italy and Victor Emmanuel ! The Italians must not any account abandon this programme. Victor Emmanuel is the only indispensable man in Italy, around whom all the men of our peninsula must rally. I do not care whether the minister's name be Cavour or Cattaneo (the latter preferable); but what I care for, and what all Italians must inexor- ably demand, is that on the 5th March, 1861,Victor Emmanuel be at the head of 500,000 soldiers.-Nov. 28th, 1860. GARIBALDI.   IN HIS RETREAT.-A Turin letter in the Siecle has the following :-" I have just seen a person arrived from Caprera, who has given me some details about Garibaldi. The general has sent away all the aides-de-camp who accompanied him, and has now with him only his son and daughter, his friend Deideri, and his priva...

Letters to the Editor. [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents, nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] TO THE EDITOR OF THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 2 March 1861

Letters to the Editor.   [We do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our Correspondents; nor are we in anywise answerable for the same.] TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE GOLDEN AGE. Sir,--On reading your issue of the 3rd instant, I observed a paragraph concerning the petition that was got up by Mr. Edgar for the purpose of removing our   District Constable Ditcham, stating that when it was sent to the Bench for their consideration, Mr. Hall said it was only signed by boys and persons of little res- pectability or standing in society. I think Mr. Hall must have been asleep when he read the petition, (or had one eye looking at it, and the other at something else,) or he would have seen the names of persons of as much respectability and standing in society as himself. Does Mr. Hall think that because he is a magistrate, he is above all others? He also stated that     a more efficient officer than Ditcham for discharging his duties was nev...

THE ODDFELLOWS"'BA.,L.L IN presenting our readers with the usual weekly memoranda of local events, our prin cipal matter of report will be the commemo ration of the Fifth Anniversary of the Happy Home Lodge of the.Independent Order of Oddfellows, Manchester Unity. This has been the event of the week. Those who took an interest in the affair (and they were many) had beforehand been making every possible preparation. The " art and mystery " of the milliner and dressmaker were summoned, to aid in creating an effect, and jewellery and other personal adornments were laid under the necessity of lending their charms for the occasion. In fact, all that taste, assisted by art, could contrive, was resorted to to produce a display calculated to dazzle and enchant for the time. The event came off at Mrs. Breen's I-Harp Inn. The spacious ball-room was very tastefully decorated and illuminated. In the c centre of the room was the large banner of the lodge, as carried in procession in the ear l li...

By 8 o'clock these reports were e in a frightful degree confirmed. Many men c who had left their families early in the morn ing for the milking yards, were seen running home in all directions to look after the safety a of their wives and children. Rusty guns and t pistols were looked up, and primed and per cussioned ready for action in case of necessity.

COOMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 9 March 1861

:COO MA. From our own Correspondent. TaE unusual "dulness of trade and want of stir in Cooma almost deprives me of anything to' communicate in the shape of news. The weather (which generally comes in for a considerable share of remark) has for the last week been very unsettled, sometimes very hot, at other times cold; heavy showers of rain and thunderstorms. The wheat crops, I believe, have snutered much during the past week. Most of those whose wheat stacks had not been properly secured from the rain, had to be undone, opened out and dried; and the grain still in the field suffered considerably. Parties who had not intended to thresh for a considerable time have been compelled to do so at once to save further damage. I should say, that this season we may expect a consider able quantity of inferior wheat from the canses just mentioned. A couple of the. name of Arrold were brought up at the court-house on Monday last to answer to a charge of wilfully neglecting to maintain their chil...
